Digital saturation – does it help or hinder creativity?

Posted on 23/12/2011 by


We live in a world super-saturated with stimuli. The internet, wifi, smartphones, free sheet papers, advertising, radio, tv…particularly those of us living in cities use are bombarded by so much information and noise. But does the constant flow of data and ideas help or hinder us in our creativity? Are we missing out on the space, quiet, and reflection that leads to greater artistic and cultural production?

This is the subject of a discussion we are planning for the new year on the BBC Culture Cafe, and one in which we’d like you to give your views. We are also looking for contributors, so if you have something to say on this subject, please comment on this blogpost or tweet the @BBCCultureCafe
